"A compelling if sometimes muddled true-life crime drama."--Newsday
"...an engrossing-enough cautionary tale, if that's what it is. It's even an entertaining one, in an unsavory kind of way."--Washington Post
"So the big surprise about White Boy Rick is how well the movie works. It's one thing to know a story is based on nonfiction. Being made to believe its plausibility is something else."--Boston Globe
